Interventional Oncology

Principles and Practice

Interventional Oncology
Not available
Interventional oncology has joined surgical, radiation, and medical oncology as the fourth pillar of cancer care. Advances in imaging and image guidance for the detection, characterization, targeting, and therapy of cancer now allow for minimally invasive image-guided treatment of many solid tumors without the morbidity of open surgery or the toxicity of chemotherapy and radiation. The editors have brought together the accrued experience of pioneers and leaders in image-guided cancer therapy from around the globe to create the first comprehensive text for this emerging field. Covering the biology, techniques, clinical applications, and outcomes of interventional oncologic procedures for the treatment and palliation of solid tumors throughout the body, this practical reference will be indispensable for physicians across specialties who seek to provide collaborative, leading-edge care to cancer patients.
